Where's the Beef?
(2 out of 5 stars)
"This DVD gives us less than an hour of Roberta Flack on stage performing with her band and she talks through a full 25% of that time! Don't expect a satisfying concert experience from this disk. The performances are disappointingly perfunctory and a shadow of the inspired music found on those treasured early recordings. The sycophantic audience seems to make the performance seem even less satisfying. Well....maybe you had to be there. If you are a Roberta Flack fan stick to the audio recordings for now. Perhaps a video performance worthy of her talent is yet to come. This DVD has too much talk, too little music, and none of the old Roberta Flack fire."
NOT LONG ENOUGH !!!!

"This DVD is a great concert for a true Roberta fan. Mostly because the recorded concerts are so hard to find. Be I really enjoyed this dvd. The quality is really superior(sound and picture). The only negitive is that it's not long enough. I went and seen Roberta in concert last night in Memphis and she only done 9 songs just like this DVD concert. Leaving people wanting more."
Great Show but Wanted more favorites

"This concert was very intimate with the fans. I could really tell you my favorite part was the very ending when she sang "The First Time Ever I saw Your Face" I love the feeling I get when I see her sing it live. I wish they would have put my song "It Might Be You" then this concert would have been great! I mean if she can do "Sweet Geogria Brown" she could have done "It Might Be You".
Roberta's Youngest Fan"
AS LONG AS THERE IS ROBERTA, THERE IS ROMANCE

"I was two years old when Roberta Flack's first album, First Take, was released in 1969. However, in 1987,at the age of 19, I heard her 1971 album,Quiet Fire, and my life changed forever. I love the vocal talents of Nina Simone, Billie Holdiay, Sarah Vaughan, Ella F, Aretha, etc. Roberta Flack, however, has a way to getting to the soul of man with her lovely storytelling approach. Her music is HONEST! This DVD is the best that I've ever seen her. Her voice is as smooth and lovely as when I first heard her. Her delivery and timing is impeccable.Thank you, Ms. Roberta Flack, for giving the WORLD romance, mystery, and love. This DVD proves that she is still the queen of her craft!!!"
